' ' ' 'Crafty Endeavours: Words and music

Sunday 27 May 2018

Words and music

Just managed to create this tag and write the blog post, having battled my PC which is giving me headaches. Talking about problems, have you had email notifications of comments posted on your blogs lately? Mine have stopped since the 25/05, I suspect this is related to the GDPR implementation but Blogger didn't put out any notification so who knows...

The inspiration for the tag is words and music, in particular a song by Diana Ross and the Supremes, Reflections.
The background started with a printed paper by Studio Light Memories of summer. I stamped with the large Musicality stamp and applied some crackle paste around a few edges, highlighting the crackle with Distress Ink in Walnut.
I added my feature stamp fading out the edges and the Reflection stamp, which you will note has lots and lots of words behind it, making it so perfect for both Words and the song I'm illustrating!

To finish I added a bit of faux stitching with a pen, having realised that my tag was too thick for my sewing machine!

Stamps used:
Docrafts: A5 Clear background Musicality
Paper Artsy: ESN07
Lost Coast Designs: Head in Hands

I'm off trying to fix my PC and if all goes well I'll be able to drop some of your blogs to leave comments (which you won't be notified about!)

Enjoy the rest of your weekend,
I am entering the SSS Monday Challenge, Paper Artsy, SSS Wednesday Challenge, Vintage Journey, That's Crafty challenges.

  3. Great tag. Perfect for vintage neutrals.
    I have not been getting the email notifications either so I tried changing my email address to my gmail email address and I got them eventually but they arrived in the spam box. Something is not right and I am glad you mentioned it because I was wasting time trying to fix what I thought was my problem.

  4. Beautiful background on this tag! Love all the little details. Thank you for sharing it with us at That's Crafty! I.

  5. Love the neutrals and the depth here - it's a beautiful tag. It really does look as though she's gazing at her reflection. Thank you so much for joining us on A Vintage Journey.

    Yes, same here... no email notifications and I'm guessing it's linked to the GDPR changes too. So frustrating that we hear nothing from Blogger. I've had a look on the forum and there are many people experiencing it - probably more than even know about it. I just assumed for a couple of days that nobody was commenting until I went to a post and found all these new comments!
